Chocolate Cake

Like each Friday, a group of random friends and collegues go to some random place to do some cooking. This time, we did it at my Peruvian friend apartment. When we arrived at his place, there was this large freshly baked chocolate cake lying on the counter. This cake was made by my Peruvian friend cousin for her party. She was nice enough to share part of the cake with us and give out the recipe. I don't have any step-by-step pictures this time, I will have the pictures up once I made my own version.
